The food was very good. No salty, need to drink gallons of water after taste. The beef dish was very tender. The menu had a lot of different dishes that I have not heard of before, and would love to try them.

If you like really good Chinese go here! This place is very clean and so are the bathrooms. Love it here! The food is the best around but if you’re trying to go for dinner make a reservation and try to come earlier, they’re busy...for a reason.More

Went with friends, who had never experienced DIM SUM. Since it was dinner, we ordered the appetizer, which has 10 pieces of 5 various Dim Sum items. They enjoyed the new experience. One guest ordered, Plum wine, and reported it was excellent. Since we are...retired, we split meals and ordered the Mango Shrimp and the Sizzling Shrimp and Scallop in Black Pepper Sauce. Both 5 star ! Service is always top notch. If you go, I have to mention, that on a previous visit, I ordered the Whole Flounder over a "Whole Crispy Flounder". The server could not explain the dish, so I decided to try it. The "whole crispy flounder " was only the whole skeleton with fins and head, NO fish. Highest priced item at $ 34, AVOID.More

Went here fr dinner with friends and although the atmosphere / environment inside the building is a little dark the food itself is lovely. Lots of choice on the menu, generous portions of nicely balance spiced food and friendly service made this an enjoyable experience...overall. The main dishes are, in my view, large enough to split between two as are the rice platters. WI am sure we will return on our next visit to the area.More

If this is the best Asian Restaurant as I was told, go to a steak house. I have never been to Chinese Restaurant where white rice was not included with your entree. Started with the egg drop soup, it was a very thin canned broth....Egg rolls were Very greasy and not very good. They do not serve chop suey, at all. The beef in the dish we ordered was tough and hard to chew . Skip Chinese food till you get to the Midwest or NY. We have paid the check & will be going to a fast food place on the way home.More

We came in for dinner one night during our trip based on the good reviews. The place is clean, feel spacious with high ceiling and comfortable seatings. It was quiet on a Wednesday night and our server was friendly. We ordered the Clam With Basil...Sauce, Sizzling Short Ribs With Black Pepper Sauce and Yang Chow Fried Rice. Both dishes were flavorful but the fried rice was a bit bland. Overall not bad, 3.5 Star.More

Arrived at noon on Friday. They have a full Chinese American menu as well as a modest selection of Dim Sum. We wanted a light lunch and ordered Veggie Fried Rice, Spring rolls and shrimp dumplings. Dumplings were perfect. Spring rolls tasted very good but...were a little oily. Fried rice was loaded with veggies but was a little bland. Some extra soy sauce helped for me. My wife not so much.More

Excellent Peking duck. As good as the ones we had in Beijing and Shanghai. The price was reasonable. Two people, one whole duck and two glasses of wine cost $65 and we brought another meal home.

This was our third time eating here and it was just as terrific as it was the first two times. Husband had something seafood with bokchoy and crispy noodles and I had the Mongolian Beef, not spicy. Both meals were great. We will keep coming...back. Very pleased. Waitress was very nice and helpful.More

Was craving dim sum 🥟, decided to stop by at Ginger bistro for a quick lunch between the showings. Dim sum was served pretty quickly, piping hot in a fun 3 tier bamboo steamer. I had ginger soup buns, beef tripe w ginger scallion, and...beef shumai. Very delicious , and a glass of cold plum wine was a great pairing. I wish they had scallop dumpling, wanted to try that too..maybe next time : )) great place for Asian cuisine in Ft myers.More

The worst Peking duck I’ve ever had. It was totally soggy and oily even a little cold inside. I definitely will not come back to this restaurant. Also the fried rice with oily as well terrible!!

Normally I am SO excited to get to Ginger Bistro for the clay pot garlic chicken or Beef stir fried with wide rice noodles. But today I felt like I needed a big spicy soup. After consulting with my server, I decided on the seafood...soup after she said it had shrimp and scallops in it. The soup was so unappetizing and underwhelming: there were about 4 pieces f the tiniest shrimp and 2 pieces of bay scallops and about 1/2 cup of squid rings, a few pieces of mung beans, a few pieces of raw old looking mushrooms and yellow onion. There were no vegetables whatsoever nor herbs. It was so unappetizing I could not believe this was my beloved Ginger bistro. For $16 there could’ve been a few things in it!! Disappointed and will never order against Ive added a photo of a soup I make at home that has the smallest amount of zucchini, sweet peppers, basil and cilantro in it to show them. It really doesn’t take much to make it more appetizing.More
